UK Energy Research Centre Research Fund: First Call for Proposals

12 Jun 2015

Call for Expressions of Interest

The UK Energy Research Centre is issuing the first Call for Proposals under its £3.3m Research Fund. We are now seeking Expressions of Interest from universities or other institutions eligible to hold Research Council awards in two topic areas:

  • Incumbent energy systems and infrastructures
  • Equity and justice in energy systems

Consortium or single institution bids will be considered. Projects should normally start by 1 January 2016 and are expected to last between one and two years, or exceptionally up to a maximum of three years. The supported research will form an integral part of UKERC’s research programme.

Expressions of Interest should be submitted by 5pm on Friday 10th July 2015. The deadline for full applications will be the 18th September 2015. Full applications must be costed using normal FEC principles and will be subject to full peer review. UKERC does not guarantee to fund a project under each topic. Decisions will depend on the outcome of the peer review process.
